Widen Celebrates 70 Years in Business

by Jake Athey, March 22, 2018

Founded in 1948, Widen is an anomaly in the software space: a family-owned plate engraving business that reinvented itself into a global technology company. Widen’s history demonstrates how companies can adapt and thrive through technological disruptions.

In 1948, Emily and Arthur Widen founded Widen Engraving, a company that engraved plates for newspaper presses. Under their son, Mark Widen, the company expanded into additional prepress services, evolving from plates to film negatives and color printing.

by Deanna Ballew, October 19, 2017

Sometimes changes in our software are obvious, like when we launch a new product like Portals. Or when there’s a visual change to the user interface. Other times, changes are less obvious, like when we work on the back-end to support increased consumption of 25 million total assets, bulk uploads of 1.5 million assets, and 14 million embed code views per day.

To help you understand how our teams are always working to deliver the best solution, we wanted to share how we make software at Widen.
